Clear Cut Couples: Michael and Casey

Michael and Casey met in college at Rutgers University, their Junior year of college. They met through mutual friends, and eventually got together! Their first date was at a sushi place near Michael's home town in New Jersey. He surprised her with flowers (that he had his mom get… LOL) and they had such a nice time! August 16th, 2021 was their 5 year anniversary! They have shared so many incredible memories since then!

When Michael first told Casey that he loved her, it was 3 months into their relationship and they were drunk at their friend's frat party. She will never forget that moment, she said it right back!

In 2018, they took a trip to Cuba with Michael's family because his whole mom's side is from Cuba, and it was their first time back since leaving as children. It was such a memorable trip and she got to meet his extended family who still lives in Cuba. Another memorable moment was when Casey surprised Michael and bought basketball tickets in 2019 to watch his favorite player, LeBron James play against the Philadelphia 76ers. In 2019, they had their 1st Europe trip together and visited Barcelona, Paris, and London. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay in all the cities doing the things that they love most; eating good food and drinking.

Michael proposed in Savannah, Georgia on September 4th, 2021. It was on a beautiful street called Jones Street. Their 2 best friends were taking pictures of them, and then he pulled out the ring box! Michael was so nervous, he didn't get on one knee and their friend Eugene was yelling "get down on one knee!"

Casey had a feeling that the proposal might happen on the trip, but she wasn't sure. She was definitely surprised when it happened! She is absolutely in love with the ring - it is her dream ring! As for their wedding, they are likely getting married in New Jersey where they both live, and are in the process now of looking at venues for a Fall wedding. Congrats you two! We are SO happy for you!
